    Hello. Are you and your friend living in the same country?
    Starcraft does not use client-server architecture so the player's latency is what matters and it sounds like the latency between you and your friend is very high, however, this could be a router issue as well. Did you open the following ports 6112-6117 TCP&UDP from your router?

    @Issilrah, you and your friend will most likely need to port forward and open the following range of ports in your firewall: 6112 to 6119 TCP and UDP
